Dear Costa Mesans,
Thank you! I am so pleased with you coming out last night, taking time from your busing schedules, to come to the first Town Hall. There were a few rough spots, so I appreciate your patience, but I am glad we could get the message out that what done is done and we need to work together as a community to keep us safe. Thank you to the CERT representatives--Diane Swarts and Diane Hill of United Neighbors and Neighborhood Safety and Preparedness Program for their great presentations and encouraging residents to sign up for the newsletter and training. (More later, I'm off to teach today). I can upload those documents so others can spread the word too.
Our city is awesome! Our employees---all of them--- are awesome! I believe those who are still with us are hard workers regardless of what is happening on the City Council. We miss those who have moved on, but appreciate their service to our City and wish them well. Not everyone goes into public service. It takes a special kind of person. And not everyone goes into public service for the benefits and pensions.
My priority will continue to do what is best for Costa Mesa. Thankfully things are slowing down a bit so we can catch our breath and begin to do things decently and in order.
